Joe Burrow is beginning training camp going under the knife, but Bengals fans shouldn't worry too much.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported on Tuesday that Burrow is undergoing an appendectomy, which will sideline him for an undetermined amount of time.

As long as the surgery goes without complications and Burrow isn't in a tremendous amount of pain, we'd imagine he'll be back sooner rather than later.

In the meantime, Bengals fans are recovering from the scare they got reading the first part of Rapoport's tweet and wishing for a fast healing process for their franchise QB.

In his second NFL season, Burrow returned from a torn ACL to lead the Bengals to the Super Bowl. 

With that in mind, coming back from appendicitis should be a breeze for the 2020 No. 1 overall pick.
